Actually it IS PD
All due respect, but I believe that the renewal you cite is invalid. When this film was made, they would've had to renew within the 28th year from the IN NOTICE DATE. As you noted, the in notice is 1951 which means they would've had to renew by December 31, 1979 for the renewal to be legitimate.
I am concerned though by the few movies that are certainly still under copyright that pop up here (such as The Mummy film which recently turned up, and which is most certainly copyrighted). It jeopardizes the legitimacy of the entire site.
